Compile-errors in 3.1.10 (Rolf Rander Naess)

So... it looks like you're compiling 3.1.9 (not 3.1.10), and you're
not actually building it for the 2.2.12 kernel you mention, you're
building it against a 2.3.43 or newer development kernel.
This combination won't work, due to API changes in the latest
development kernels. You can try the latest beta on sourceforge.org
